HOLLISTON HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM

LAST HOLLISTON PTO PARENT ED EVENT OF THE SCHOOL YEAR! 

DON'T MISS THIS IMPORTANT EVENT

 

MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED

 

You are invited to a screening of the ground-breaking documentary; Most Likely to Succeed, followed by an interactive discussion with a panel of experts about re-imagining our school system.

 

This is a must-attend event for administrators, faculty, parents, counselors, interested students and community members; this discussion affects everyone with an interest in education, at all levels. Join us for this compelling community-wide event to learn more about the history of education in the United States and explore how we can encourage creativity and innovation in our schools to equip students for the changing needs of the future. It is your school system and we want you to be involved.

·       Did you know that the American education system is built around an 1893 model developed to equip the industrial revolution?

·       Do you feel that our current education model is preparing students for working life in the 21st century?

·       Do you agree with the existing model of teacher-led learning, or would you like to see a more widespread introduction of project-based learning?

·       Are you interested in debating the pros and cons of a major shift in teaching practices?

 

The Sundance-selected documentary has a running time of 89 minutes and explores compelling new approaches to educating students in today’s innovative world and offers ways to revolutionize teaching as we know it. After seeing this film, the way you think about ‘school’ will never be the same again. A 30-minute panel discussion and Q & A session will follow to begin the conversation about how Holliston Public Schools can explore these ideas further. The event is FREE.

 

Our panelistsMrs. Karla Garvin, HPS Montessori Director, Ms. Dominique Ross, HHS Guidance Department Leader and Dr. Brad Jackson, HPS Superintendent,  bringing you a cross-section of knowledge and insights to open the discussion.

 

Once you have had a chance to digest the initial introduction, we invite you to return to an interactive discussion session scheduled for

Tuesday, May 16th at 7pm at the

Robert Adams Middle School auditorium.

 

Want to get a head-start on the philosophy? You can preview the trailer atwww.mltsfilm.org and review excerpts from the film where Sir Ken Robinson and other thought leaders tackle the most important issues facing education today:
